By default, all email notifications that are sent to the users come from Genea's email server. With the custom SMTP settings, you allow the system to send emails through your own email server, which means that it will look like it came from you.
Configuring Your Own SMTP Settings:
1. Navigate to the 'Integrations' tab in your admin dashboard.
2. Locate SMTP and click "Install".
3. Enter your SMTP server credentials and click on "Send Test Email". The system attempts to send a simple message to the logged-in admin email address and reports the status of the interactions with the email server.
If you have successfully set up your SMTP server, a test email will automatically send to the email address with which you are logged in to the Genea application. If the test fails, verify the details you entered for SMTP configuration.
Host: The actual SMTP server’s specification.
Port: SMTP server port number.

4. Click Save. Once the STMP server has been set up, all email notifications that will reach the users will go through your email account.
